What are Three Elements of a Successful Medical Malpractice Case?
What Are Three Elements of a Successful Medical Malpractice Case? -- NY Lawyer Barry Washor explains 212.406.1700 New York medical malpractice attorney Barry Washor discusses the three elements you need for any successful personal injury case. A medical malpractice case can be very complicated and confusing. But an experienced attorney understands you only need three components: liability, damages, and causation. First, we need to show that someone was negligent or careless, and that this caused you harm. Did the doctor or nurse do something during surgery or fail to diagnose a serious condition? In what way were they negligent in your medical care? Once we can prove liability, we then need to prove you were harmed in the process. We must show that even though we know there was negligence, that the actual negligence caused or contributed to your injuries. What harms and losses did you actually suffer as a result? Finally, we show that the person who was negligent actually caused the injury. Basically, but only for their negligence did you suffer any harm. With all three elements, we're able to prove you've been harmed by medical malpractice and deserve to be compensated. Watch this video to learn more.
